Wells and Vennels

Wells and Vennels ~ a watery history of old Dundee

by Sarah Maclean and Lesley Harrison


This wee booklet grew out of a chance conversation and a summer of urban safari. The original quest was to pinpoint the wells and burns around which the city of Dundee grew, and which are now subsumed into the modern sewer system. The main findings became part of the Creative Scotland/Scottish Natural Heritage project Making Space for Water; but many curious notes were gathered by the by, and were the inspiration for Sarah’s ink drawings.

Sarah Maclean is an illustrator and artist. She lectures in art & design at Angus College.

The booklet has 15 drawings and notes, and costs £8 inc p&p. For sale at Waterstones, Dundee; or via email to auchmithiecalendar@gmail.com.
